Alexandria Gazette (VA)
1 May 1827

DIED, on the 28th instant, in the town of Dumfries, Mr. FRANCIS H. DUNNINGTON, in the 46th year of his age. In the death of Mr. Dunnington, Dumfries has lost one of its most active, industrious, enterprising and useful merchants. He sustained a character without reproach in every relationship of life; in his intercourse with society he was liberal and just; to his friends he was warm-hearted and sincere; to the poor and distressed, he was kind and charitable; in fine, his integrity, liberality public spirit, and urbanity of manners commanded the respect and esteem of all who knew him. He has left a distressed widow and children, to whom he had endeared himself by being one of the kindest and best of husbands and fathers, as well as numerous friends to deplore his death.
